The Scottish Highlands


I am a lecturer at the intersection between network analytics, statistical relational learning, and computational social science.

In 2014 I was awarded a Juniorfellowship from the German Informatics Society (GI e.V.). In March 2018 I was awarded an SNSF Professorship from the Swiss National Science Foundation. In summer I will join the Department of Informatics at University of Zurich as a Professor for Data Analytics.
